Hereafter trainmen on the eastern
division of the Chicago & Alton rail,
road will not be required to work

perintendent of the division, with
headquarters at Blooiuington, III., has
i$uea an imperative order to train
masters, roundhouse foremea and
yard matters on the division to that
effect. By his action Supt. Griggs has
launched a reform that long haa been
